Despite off-field distractions, Sammy confident ahead of World T20

It’s been a rough 18 months for the West Indies.

From player strikes to pay-structure disputes to injuries, there’s been plenty of distractions for players and management alike.

Windies Captain Darren Sammy, however, says he’s confident the Caribbean side has what it takes to win the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 Championship.

“I think we have a really good side,” Sammy said in a press conference this week. “Obviously it’s difficult to replace (Keiron) Pollard and (Sunil) Narine who were key members of our squad when we won the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka. But we have Carlos Brathwaite — who replace Pollard — who is an exciting all-rounder and I know he’ll play a big part in this tournament for us. Also, young Ashley Nurse replacing Narine. He also brings in his batting qualities.”

The squad has a pair of warm-up matches before starting group play later this month.
